Nikon India announced the launch of the new Speedlight SB-500. It is compact, portable and lightweight. The SB-500 runs on AA-size batteries. It also packs a highperformance LED light, making it ideal for recording video in the dark, or to provide additional natural light for close-up still shooting.
The Speedlight SB-500 weighs 273g (with batteries). The flash head tilts up to 90° and rotates horizontally 180° to the left or right. It includes an LED light with an output of approximately 100 lux, which has three output levels (Low, Mid, High). The SB-500 supports Nikon’s Creative Lighting System, adaptable to both i-TTL flash and manual flash control, and is also capable of operating as a remote flash in Advanced Wireless Lighting. The Nikon Speedlight SB-500 will be available by the end of September 2014 for Rs.16,950.
